What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £771,000 property? I am looking for discount conveyancing in Grays.


Many online and high street firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may inflate the final bill. Charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and come into force only if your solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


The property seller has added unseemly doors on the home in Grays which might conflict with local conservation area guidelines


The conveyancing solicitor should verify whether the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate consent from the Thurrock planning authority.

In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Grays conveyancer will give you professional advice on all options, which include seeking from Thurrock council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.


We plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Tollesbury. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

Whether you are buying a house in Grays or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Grays, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


We are buying on a Grays brownfield site. Is the soil possibly contaminated?


There are considerable regulations to restrict top-soil contamination. The local authority for Grays will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


Is your panel of solicitors geared up for complete fast the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Grays?


The legal team put together legal documentation for vendors and commonly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. It is critical for bidders to choose their chosen conveyancing firm as fast as they can to give enough time for a full review of the legal documents before the day of the auction. Subsequently, immediately after the auction your selected solicitor will be prepared for concluding the transaction in the limited time as required by the terms if sale.


What sort of local searches in connection with the potential risk of floods at Essex will the property solicitor in Grays actually apply for?


An integral component in the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves your solicitor applying for property conveyancing searches that provide some details about the Grays flood risk.


Which local authority is responsible for Grays?


Grays is located in Thurrock Council, Civic Offices, New Road, Grays, Essex, RM17 6SL, Tel: 01375 652 652


We are buying a converted flat within a conservation area in Grays. Where does one find information concerning the state of repair?


English Heritage, a government body, have put together records of the state of conservation areas in England. Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Thurrock) who administer things like the historic layout of roads to plastic box signs.
